Bleep the dealers!!!

Man, words cant even explain this stupidity.

This morning i get a call just after dropping mine off from the dealer (they were supposed to be putting my 2 new back tires on the truck as a part of the deal). Mind you i have already signed the papers for this. I dropped my dodge (almost brand spakin' new 3500 cummin mega cab) off this morning for them to appraise the trade in and i was supposed to pick my new truck up on my lunch break today. Well as soon as i get to work they call me. The salesman or whoevers exact words "We have some problems here". First thing runs through my mind, 1 of the lot boys wrecked my truck. Well nah the dumbasses appraised my truck for NINE THOUSAND more than what im paying for the stroker. SIGH . He seemed baffled, as on the papers i stated it would be a clean trade (even knowing my dodge was worth this much more). Well they refuse to pay me the 9 grand on top of the F350. SO this cluster**** situation has turned into this deal. I buy the F350 for asking price AFTER the purchase my dodge for the asking price of the F350. What the hell..................i think this is turning into a whole lot of what it shouldnt be. Mind you this is a very new chevy dealer in the area and im probably one of the first few customers.

What to do? They REFUSE to trade fair and square, im at a loss of words. Sorry for the novel ive been working 17 straight just thought id swing by and give you all somehting to read. Ill maybe revise it in the morning to make it more legible and clarify alot of the details i left out.

That deal sounds screwing...I have done flat trades (plus tax and tags) before, and have not had this much trouble.

if you have already signed papers showing that they had agreed to trade tell them your lawyer will be contacting them.

Maybe this is the right thing to do.

if it is in the contract, then they are bound to it just as you are. if they refuse then i would tell them the deal is off. to heck with them, they are trying to get you in the rear real good without any lube my friend. they arent going to make as much in the deal so they are being jerks now.

I agree. Tell them that your lawyer will be the next person they talk to if they do not make this right. I have done this before in similar situations and it scared them enough that they back peddled and I got what I wanted. They did not know that I did not have a lawyer. I would have retained a cut throat liar that would only get paid if I win. Dealers do not like dealing with lawyers. Furthermore, it is relatively cheap to actually get a lawyer to hear your case and call the dealership to use the legal language and scare the crap outta them. And most of the time that is all it takes is a lawyer to call and say a few things and they are squared away. It's a contract. They would have screwed you if you had backed out after signing. They have the same commitment to that contract as you do. Good luck and let us know how this pans out. Any Lawyers on the Forum that can make a phone call on this one????????

Sounds like they are trying to work the books or something... that is rediculous..

just ask them what they can pay..lol and if the papers are signed - it should be good as done. just make sure you get a copy of everything! and make sure it has the MANAGERS signature, not salesman, because they will try to use that to say the salesman can't make that kind of deal bla bla bla bla

heck - throw out that you are one of the first customers and that you don't think it would be wise of them to start tarnishing their name that quickly.... just push back - usually all it takes to get them to back down.

good luck and I hope it works out for you!

Look at it this way, if you signed the papers and then decided to back out what would the dealership do? I know they would seek a legal approach. They signed a contract as did you stating you would buy that truck and they would buy your truck for a set price, they are bound. After telling them you are seeking legal action for breech of contract you are also going to call a Ford rep and explain their shady business ethics, and possibly the Attorney General. After telling them this they probably will already have a little wet spot in their pants. Dealerships really dislike attorneys and bad reps.

Also, call the newspaper/radio station/TV station and see if they have a "consumer advocacy" program. Dealers hate bad press almost as bad as they dislike lawyers...

I've also heard of people "picketing" the stealerships with signs that say "keep your end of the bargain" or "ask me about my experience with this dealer". Any way to make a stink...
